“A working actor has been defined as ‘an actor who while never achieving stardom, has a long and productive career and earns a better than decent living and has the admiration of his peers,’ “ the obituary reads. “Nothing could better describe Garson. For the last four decades, he appeared in over 300 television shows and over 70 films.”

In addition to his extensive filmography, Garson also appeared on stage in productions at theatres across the country, including the Naked Angels, Manhattan Theatre Club, Roundabout Theatre Company, and the Geffen Playhouse.

His friends and family said, “Garson was ubiquitous in American pop culture. He could play Michael J. Fox’s classmate on Family Ties or a waiter on an episode of Cheers, L. Harvey Oswald in an independent film called Ruby, or Bill Murray’s sidekick in Groundhog Day. He looks like he could be the president of an apartment board on Friends, a TV executive in Soapdish, or a man with mysterious luck in The X-Files.”

After hearing of Garson’s death on Tuesday, stars all over Hollywood paid tribute to the actor’s life and work.

Garson played Sarah Jessica Parker’s best friend Stanford Blatch in Sex and the City and its spinoffs. He had already filmed scenes for the upcoming reboot And Just Like That.

Author of SATC Darren Star said about Garson, “sweet, soulful, and hilariously funny.”

“Willie touched all of us with his big heart and generous spirit,” Star says. “The man behind Stanford was a loving father, a mensch to his friends, and radiated kindness to all. He is gone much too soon.”

Actress Cynthia Nixon tweeted that he was “loved” and “adored” by everyone on set.

“So deeply, deeply sad we have lost @WillieGarson. We all loved him and adored working with him. He was endlessly funny on-screen and in real life. He was a source of light, friendship, and show business lore. He was a consummate professional — always.”
